Temporary Orders in Texas

Experienced Attorneys in Austin, Travis & Williamson

The main goal of a temporary order is to allow your family to continue operating as normally as possible while the court processes your divorce. If a child custody matter is filed first, it is imperative that decisions regarding custody, visitation, and maintenance or support are made immediately. These court orders are called temporary orders and are intended to direct the parents’ actions during the case. The orders can be changed while the case is still going or if the need arises.

Why Temporary Orders are Important

Temporary orders dictate matters such as:

  • Who gets to live in the marital home during the divorce process
  • Parenting time and parameters for each parent or conservator
  • Spousal or child support payments made during the proceedings

Entering into the divorce or custody process does not mean that real life stops. You will still be responsible for paying the following:

  • Mortgage
  • Health insurance
  • Utility bills
  • Taxes
  • Other daily expenses

You do not want to pay more than you need to while it is yet to be decided which party is responsible for these costs on a long-term basis. Additionally, you don’t want to be separated from your children more than is necessary. These important issues are addressed through temporary orders, meaning you should take them seriously and recruit legal help from an Austin attorney as soon as possible.

What Temporary Orders Mean for the Future

While temporary orders do not necessarily directly correlate to the final divorce decisions, they do determine how you and your children will live while the case is pending. We recommend that you protect your interests from the beginning and speak to an Austin attorney from Andrae Law, PLLC today.
